Keeping ones word or promises i believe is the basis of credibility.and it reminds the person who promised to fulfill it. But promises sometimes they said are made to be broken.even the promises made on the altars on marriages.But when somebody promised that keeps us more secured..even in business world.its good in business world cause we have the right to sue them.but out of business industry,what do you do if somebody promised you a very important thing to be done but not fulfilled?

I will initially feel very disappointed but I will still give the guy a chance to explain why he failed to keep his promise. Then from their, i will decide if he deserve another chance. I just hope that broken promises will always have a valid reason while it was not kept properly.

I don't believe that a promise always defines a persons credibility because if someone cannot fulfill a promise they have made, whether a very important one or not, we must try and see the reason why they have not been able to meet their words. It's quite possible that the person was very busy with something, got into such a situation that is keeping him/her back from fulfilling the promise or simply just isn't in the position to fulfill it. However, if a person can fulfill a promise and does not do so without any proper reason, then yes, I would definitely attribute this to their credibility no matter what, because a promise is a promise. If someone promised something to be done but they could not fulfill it, I would consider all the factors that I mentioned above and then take the next step. If it was what I mentioned in the first paragraph, I would let it go for now. If it was something related to what I mentioned in the second paragraph, I would gently remind them once, and if they still tried to shy away, I would either ignore them or simply throw some nice verbal remarks ;)
